Summit Daily/Mark FoxRobin Avery, right, along with her sister, Susie Klock, are opening the Howling Coyote Coffeehouse today in the Soda Creek Neighborhood in Summit Cove

A new cafe, the Howling Coyote CoffeeHouse, opens today in the Soda Creek Neighborhood Center of Summit Cove.

“I woke up one night thinking hard about doing this,” said owner and Summit Cove resident Robin Avery. “I listened and there were coyotes going off all over Summit Cove. They tend to frequent here. You don’t see them much, but you can hear them.”

According to Avery, there were many motivating factors to open a new coffee house in the area.

“I enjoy making coffee and drinking coffee,” Avery said, “and I wanted a place where people could bring their kids and have a welcoming atmosphere. It’s a friendly place where the community can meet.”

The Howling Coyote is open 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Business hours may change in the next few weeks.

The Howling Coyote serves all the traditional espresso drinks, Avery said, and she’s open to trying new drinks if people have a favorite. Organic tea is also available.

Specials are available for the next few weeks. The Howling Coyote’s grand opening celebration is set for May 9.
